Our team at Contender eSports is here to serve the Springfield, MO community and surrounding areas by creating the best atmosphere and venue for esports in the world. We believe that the Contender experience is unparalleled and we are privileged to provide it for a city we love. Brett Payne and his team work around the clock to build upon that excellent experience and constantly deliver the next greatest level of customer service.
Brett and his wife Kristi opened the location in February of 2019, it is now the oldest Contender eSports gaming center and among the most visited locations in the company. The Springfield, MO store also has a history of nurturing highly motivated managers and staff. Jesse Skaggs, the first store manager built upon the Contender eSports formula with a keen sense of brand personality and a sports mindset. Jesse and his handpicked staff kickstarted the Springfield store’s popularity and oversaw the growing list of memberships. Following Jesse’s transfer to Director of Corporate Partnerships, Jessica Klutz, Jesse’s personal choice for the manager role continued that explosive trajectory. It helped encourage positivity and equality in the gaming community. Finally, Contender eSports current manager Adrian Frugé has begun emphasizing birthdays, after-school programs, and partnerships that will provide new and exciting opportunities to Springfield families.
